Wow, this thread has really slowed down. I guess everyone is too embarrassed since sotos showed off his awesome management skills...

Going to reinstall my Strike X controller after fixing it. Hope nothing blows up.

It's tax season so I'm guessing there will be a few new members and some revisions to existing member's rigs once people start getting returns. I'll be updating my rig as well.

I have a huge favor to ask for some 600T owners. Could one of you please take some photos of the empty drive bays, and the little trays that hold the hard drives?

I love the 600T, and plan on getting one soon. The one qualm I have about it are the hard drive trays. I dislike they way they're open at the front. Right now, I have trays that are closed on the front on my Silverstone, I want to try to see if they'll fit.

Thanks thumb.gif

I installed my strike x fan controller and everything works, yay.

I used the last channel on the fan controller to run the LEDs on my front fan. I don't know if anyone recalls or not, but a month or so ago I had gone through all the effort to wire up and install some blue LEDs on my 200mm NZXT fan. I tested it out of the computer and it worked, but when I installed it, it stopped working.

When I had tested it, I connected it to a spare connector from another computer and it didn't work. I thought I must have screwed up the polarity, so I reversed it and it worked. When I installed it in my computer it failed again. Gees. So, I switched the polarity back the way it was to begin with and now it's working fine.

That fan has all the mounts and wire troughs for LEDs but they never installed them at the factory. I installed 8 LEDs and a series resistor. The resistor gets warm but not hot. I had wired them to the fan controller so I could shut them off, but it turns out that this fan controller will not control the LEDs and just runs them on full all the time. It may be because it's not getting an RPM signal, I'm not sure. I checked the controller with a fan and it works so I know the controller is OK.

I have to say I think it was more work than it was worth myself. Personally, I think if anyone wants a blue LED 200mm fan they should just purchase one. I like the NZXT because of the 166 CFM it gets, but I'd settle for a blue Cooler Master fan at 110 CFM.

Here's a couple of pics:

This is what I was removing

I did a cleaning while I was at it, you can see how dirty the bottom intake fan filter got. I guess it's doing it job, and must be pulling in a fair amount of air to get this dirty:

The bottom intake hole:

Dirty filter:

Look how clean the power supply filter is. I'm a little worried it may not be getting good airflow.

Much cleaner now:

Strike X reinstalled, you can see the new LEDs in the NZXT fan:

NZXT LEDs from the inside:

Cleaned up and ready to go:

Here's a blurry (sorry, I'm going to pick up a cheap tripod) picture of the LEDs from the front with no flash.

One last thing guys. I was using my H100 on my old Gigabyte Socket 775 board and it was awesome. 7c lower than the H70. When I got this ASUS socket 1155 board with the i5 in it, I was surprised because I thought the temps were a little high, especially the idle temps. They would jump around from about 33c to about 38c just web browsing. I just chocked it up to the i5.

When I took the system apart to clean it, I noticed the TIM wasn't spread on one side. At least, it was there but didn't look like it was squish-spread. All the screws were tight and there was no board components in the way.

I found that the screws were not tight against the board, but they were tight screwed into the back plate. You couldn't tighten them any more, but they were loose. I removed the back plate (rear bracket) and I installed four of those red fiber washers. I had to use a drill bit to widen the hole in the washers a little, but after doing this I was able to tighten the screws and the whole assembly is now tight. I can no longer wiggle the screws. After tightening the fasteners for the block and testing the system, my idle temps have gone down 5c (they vary from 26c to33c) and the AS5 hasn't cured yet.

I don't know if this was the screws (I doubt it because it worked perfectly on the socket 775 board) or if it was caused because the ASUS motherboard is actually thinner than the Gigabyte board is.

I just thought I would mention it in case anyone was having temp issues with the H100.

How do you guys get the hard drives to fit in the 5.25 drive bays? What converter do you guys use?

That's protzman, that helps immensely, exactly what I was looking for. It looks like they might fit, but can't tell for sure.

Luckily, that wasn't a deciding factor on getting the case or not, moreso a personal curiosity smile.gif
